You can actually support a team without shouting slogans for the whole test and having a 25 drink minimum. Not that there's anything wrong with that, mind.
I thought the "look at the scoreboard" chant as a response to the 340th chorus of "we are the army" for the day was pretty funny really.
Haha a chant along the same lines started on the 3rd day at the Gabba as well. When england brought up the 100 the BA group near me started singing "we are the army" which was soon shot down by a few chants regarding the fact that they were 500 behind. Even funnier was that some guy was giving Brett Lee (who was fielding just in front of us) a hard time to which Lee turned around, smiled and put up 5 fingers.
TBH though the best thing i saw from the Fanatics was at 1 stage just after Pietersen got out early that morning, 2 of the Fanatics brought out a huge sign saying "Barmy Army.... Where the Bloody Hell Are Ya?"
